No doubt you’ve heard the news by now: Your iPhone is snooping on you, regularly recording data about your whereabouts. My response to this news is similar to David Pogue’s, So what? Of course, there are real forensics implications here, as these hidden files pop up as Exhibit A in divorce trials and criminal prosecutions. The bottom line, I guess, is that if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.

Curious about what my iPhone recorded about me, I downloaded iPhoneTrackerWin, the Windows version of  the Mac application iPhone Tracker. Below you can see two screenshots showing my recent locations nationally and within the northeast. The actual application lets you play your locations as a video, showing where you were on any given day.
